Coming up this week, it looks like king salmon on the Yukon have returned in slightly better numbers than expected, a form of whale repellant is being tested by fishermen in Southeast, and Ketchikan doubles-down on shellfish production. We had help from KNOM’s Matthew Smith in Nome, KCAW’s Elizabeth Jenkins in Sitka, KRBD’s Leila Kheiry in Ketchikan, and KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs in Kodiak.

           It’s Relay for Life time again in Kodiak. Each year hundreds of community members take to the Woody Way field and participate in the 24-hour relay while raising funds for the American Cancer Society. This will be the 8th year for Kodiak’s Relay for Life and more than 16 teams are signed up.
            Angela Graham helped organize the event and said this year’s relay will be superhero-themed. She said they are hoping to raise $50,000.
            “It’s a community event that we can all get together and stand behind those who are fighting cancer, we can with the people that have survived cancer and we can hold the hands of people that have lost somebody to cancer.” 
            Still, fundraising is the goal, because Graham said the American Cancer Society provides a lot of financial support to Kodiak families that are fighting cancer, including airfare to and from off island appointments.
            “There’s all sorts of services once you get to Anchorage for the Kodiak folks. There’s wigs for those that lose their hair that need that option. So the money goes into so many different avenues of getting rid of cancer.”

           Graham added that research is included in that.

Pasagshak Drainage Closing to Sockeye Angling PDF Print E-mail

    Poor escapement has claimed another popular sportsfishing spot on Kodiak Island. In an emergency order today (Wednesday), the Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced the closure of the Pasagshak River drainage to sportfishing for sockeye salmon. It goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and is closed until further notice.
    According to Fish and Game figures, the escapement goal for sockeye into the Pasagshak River drainage is 3,000 fish, but as of Monday (July 14), the weir count was just 410 sockeye salmon.
    As a result, and based on historical run timing, the department is not projecting the Pasagshak system to meet its goal.

    When the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meets Thursday night, there will likely be a number of residents rising to speak out about an ordinance passed two weeks ago. Ordinance Number 2014-20, was sponsored by Assemblywomen Carol Austerman and Chris Lynch.
    Calling for decorum during public and assembly member comment, the ordinance requires the presiding officer to immediately stop the speaker if they engage in personal attacks or impugn the motives of an assembly member.
    Former Borough Mayor Jerome Selby chaired hundreds, if not thousands, of meetings over the years, and is very familiar with Roberts Rules of Order and its limitations in practice.
    “You can put anything you want to in an ordinance, but realistically in the middle of a meeting there are some folks who are simply not going to abide by the rules. And you got to understand that. So you need to use the Roberts Rules of order and whatever other tools you have available to keep folks on target. They’re supposed to be commenting on the policy – which there’s nothing about policy that has to do with individuals. But some folks can’t get that through their head and some folks think that the way they will affect policy is to attack somebody. Which of course they defeat their purpose when they do that. But they never understand that.”
    Having wielded the chair’s gavel to stop abusive or otherwise off-topic speakers on occasion, Selby said he understands what the assembly was trying to do with the decorum ordinance.

            The Alutiiq Museum is gearing up for another year of its Community Archaeology Project. The annual program began in 1997 and allows community members with little to no archaeology experience a chance to participate in real research at an actual excavation site.
             Amy Steffian is the director of research and publications at the Alutiiq Museum and helped start the project almost two decades ago with archaeologist Patrick Saltonstall. She said they have worked at a number of sites over the years and this season they will continue their focus on the Kashevaroff site – one of many the museum has excavated in Womens Bay. Steffian said community members and museum staff began excavating the site last year and believe it is a late prehistoric house – probably 300 or 400 years old.
              “Patrick found the Kashevaroff site. We had permission from the borough a couple of years ago to go out to Womens Bay and look for sites as part of our broader research project. And by digging a few holes in likely spots and using a soil probe to look for wood charcoal or disturbed sod earth, Patrick was able to find the site.”
